See also: <a href="sum-between-dates.htm">Sum between date ranges</a></h2><p class="j">To count dates that fall between a date range we can use SUMPRODUCT with a twist. Suppose you have a list of valid dates in A1:A20. The formula we can use to count dates that fall between 2 dates is;<br><br><b>=SUMPRODUCT((\$A\$1:\$A\$20&gt;D1)*(\$A\$1:\$A\$20&lt;E1))</b><br><br>Where D1 houses your start date and E1 you end date.<br><br>Or, we can hard code the dates into our SUMPRODUCT Function by using the DATE Function.<br><br><b>=SUMPRODUCT((\$A\$1:\$A\$20&gt;DATE(2010,7,29))*(\$A\$1:\$A\$20&lt;DATE(2010,8,1)))</b><br><br><i><b>Syntax for the date function is: DATE(Year, Month, Day)</b></i></p></body></html>
